One of my student's mom works at a local art gallery/museum. She came to our class and taught the six elements of a portrait and how you can use them to help you when reading. The kids loved looking at all the different famous portraits.
Pumpkins are starting to flow in and they are as cute as ever. For the past two years I have the students to write a report using their favorite book and then decorate a pumpkin as the main character. I just love the Giving Tree in the top corner. You can find the report template in my Pumpkin Book Report Craftivity.
With all things fall we have been as busy as usual. We had my school's fall carnival. I was in charge of face painting. By the end of the night I was really good at painting a pumpkin, cat, and a spider.
On Wednesday we took a field trip to the Corn Maze. It was such much fun. I heard many of the children say that it was the best day ever! Of course we went through the corn maze, but we also made butter, ice cream, hayrides, barnyard swings, learned about animals, and picked pumpkins in a pumpkin patch.
Recently my oldest had a dance performance at a local arts festival, The Revel. The girls had fun making arts and crafts in the kid section.
That about wraps in up for my busy hectic week! Just hang in there, November is almost here!! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
